Meet the founders
Terry Shand and Geoff Kempin have been at the forefront of the entertainment industry for over four decades. Terry founded Castle Communications in 1983, primarily as a record company that later moved into film and television. Over the next fourteen years Castle would grow into one of the largest and most successful independent music companies in Europe, employing over 150 people with offices across three continents. Terry moved Castle into television and film, with Geoff joining the company, in the mid to late 80’s, producing 1000’s of hours of content that covered everything from live music films to travel, cultural, military history and music documentaries. When it was sold in the late 90’s Castle boasted one of the biggest recorded music and audio / visual catalogues in the World.
Terry and Geoff would then continue building on the success of Castle in their next company, Eagle Rock Entertainment, which over 20 years became the number one name in recorded music concerts and music-related documentaries, producing award winning content from the likes of the Rolling Stones, John Lennon, Dr Dre, Eric Clapton, The Bee Gees, Miles Davis, Eminem, Elton John, Queen, Aerosmith, Madonna, The Doors and many more. Several of these films either won or were nominated for both Grammy and Emmy TV and film industry awards. Eagle Rock was acquired by Universal Music in 2014 with Terry remaining at the helm for five more years, where alongside Geoff he greenlit the critically acclaimed SKY/PBS co-production Icons: Music through the Lens, and won an Emmy for the PBS co-production Miles Davis: Birth of the Cool.
In 2020 Terry went back to his roots, revitalising the ‘Castle’ brand under the newly formed ‘Castle Entertainment’ banner, reuniting with Geoff in 2022 alongside a renewed vision to create world-class film and television content for a 21st century audience.
